Adrian grew up in Tampa, FL and started acting at the young age of 14. During his senior year, he truly identified his passion for acting when he landed his first full length theatrical production. His high school was looking for the lead dancer in the musical Fame, so Adrian auditioned, and the rest is history. He grew up playing baseball, football, and basketball, but above all dancing and acting were his life. In his dancing career, Adrian participated in countless hip-hop and break dancing competitions in which he was extremely successful. Ultimately his love for dancing launched him into acting.
Adrian received a scholarship to the theatre program at the University of Central Florida, Orlando. During his training
at the University, he worked on Nickelodeon’s Gamelab, Slimetime Live and the prestigious Orlando Shakespeare
Festival. In 1999, Adrian decided that with the training, knowledge and experience he obtained through hard work, he would move to Hollywood and live out his dream in television and film.
Adrian struggled after arriving in Hollywood, but was determined to propel forward…and that he did by landing a co-starring role on the TV show Profiler. From here, Adrian met casting director Anthony Barneo, who became the reason Adrian is where he is today. Adrian joined Barneo’s acting company, Blue Sphere Alliance. He had the opportunity to play multiple characters in the play A Piece of My Heart. Having no representation, it was this role that landed Adrian: an agent, manager, guest star appearance Battery Park, and a lead in a feature film Artie. After the success of his roles in A Piece of My Heart, Adrian has not stopped working and continues to act in countless television and film roles. TV Film Credits Include: CSI, 24, Alias, CSI New York, Summerland, JAG, Moesha, The Wayans Bros., S1m0ne and The Suite Life On Deck.
Adrian can be seen almost every day on the Disney Channel and ABC Saturday mornings playing the role of Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez in the mega hit television show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. This is Adrian’s most visible character to date, and by far Adrian’s favorite role (although his role on 24 is a VERY close 2nd).
Currently, Adrian finished filming the thriller Underground due out 2010 and also makes a very special
return to The Suite Life on Deck. Through his education and career, Adrian has had the opportunity
to work with top-acting professionals in the country and now wants to pay it forward in his celebriy actors camp. As Adrian says: “LIVE in the moment and appreciate what you have but work harder for what you
“It’s not who you know but who knows YOU.”
